Last Monday I started a 15 week program focused on writing and multimedia at the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies in Portland, Maine. It comes on the heels of a year of what my old boss, using the kind of language that makes being lost sound like being found, called a sabbatical. It was. I traveled. I came home. I struggled. And now I’m here. Humbled. Excited. And so ready to learn.
The team at More & Co. keeps whipping up poster MAGIC.
See your dancing feet at our Maine Premiere THIS Saturday at SPACE Gallery in Portland, ME. More & Co.’s got some super special dancing feet that are tapping up a storm in preparation.
Get your tix + see you on the dance floor!
Ricchio, Bourdain and Ripert. This was exactly as awesome as it looks. Those two were perfect gentlemen. Thanks, sirs!
I see a Steed.
This publicity photo I took for the play “Hedwig And The Angry Inch” (running through this weekend at SPACE Gallery in Portland, ME) is in this week’s issue of the Portland Phoenix along with this review. The show is a lot of fun, definitely worth checking out! They’ll also be doing runs in Boston and Providence. More info on the show’s site.
Experiencing the stage version of “Hedwig” was a blast. My crew was, unsurprisingly, the loud/rowdy/engaged corner of the room that inspired/cued most of the off the cuff humor. The actors loved us.

For reals though, the Portlandia screenwriters should be working on a Portland of the East vs Portland of the West episode. Although, it could be possible that residents of Portland of the West forget that their predecessor, the Portland of the East even exist. Well shit. That’s a pretty good starting point.
